Until 30 June, you can get free BT line installation; this is a massive saving as usually it would set you back £122.50. This applies to new lines, reconnections or even having second lines fitted and isn't dependant on already having a master socket.
However, it involves signing up for an 18 month contract, rather than the usual 12, and you'll need to make at least ten calls per month but these can be inclusive calls if you get a BT package. Either way though, the installation cost should dwarf any call costs.
